Sell a cop, win a book
Will the officers in the car feel any compunction about arresting Mr. James should the need arise? And will this start a trend? How long before a cop slams a perp's head into a police cruiser's roof and says: "This reading of your Miranda rights is brought to you by ... "?

The top five entries will win a book from the Detectives Beyond Borders crime library, titles to be determined in consultation with the winners.
